Renewable Energies and Smart Grid » Automotive

For this field of renewable energies and smart grid, De Lorenzo thought to insert also some trainers, which are part of Autotronics laboratory, and the reason is soon said. They are simulators concerning lightweight electric vehicles, hybrid and electric systems. In hybrid system simulator, it is possible to study the characteristics of a hybrid system that uses a parallel coupling between an internal combustion unit and a three-phase electric motor. In lightweight electric vehicles simulator, it is possible to learn the operation of three different electric vehicles: bicycle, scooter and car. In hybrid and electric system, it is possible to study all the operating characteristics of a car with a hybrid system or totally electric. All those simulators are provided with software to allow a continuous monitoring of the operation conditions and fault simulator for troubleshooting (through the simulator or from the PC). They are recommended for high schools and first years of university.

HYBRID SYSTEM

With the simulator DL AM20 it is possible to study all the operating characteristics of a hybrid system that uses a parallel coupling between an internal combustion unit and a three-phase electric motor.
This simulator is an educational system designed in vertical frame, bench-top, so the students have the capability to watch the theoretical and practical study of the automotive systems.
It includes colour mimic diagram that clearly shows the structure of the system and allows the location of components on it.
The simulator consists of a panel operating by PC with mimic diagram for the clear positioning of the components.
The various zones of the mimic diagram are presented with different colours and shades to emphasize the peculiar characteristics of the system.
The mimic diagram is fitted with light indicators so as to enable the observation of the control.
The display of the information available at the PC monitor allows the continuous monitoring of the educational system.
The operational conditions are entered by the students.
The insertion of faults is carried out by the PC.
The simulator is accompanied by relevant software to enable the student to follow step-by-step the theory and the exercise. The whole exercise procedure is carried out on the simulator. The system is accompanied by technical manuals for theory and exercises.
The subsystems that form the hybrid solution and that are analyzed by means of the simulator and shown on the synoptical panel are the following:
Gasoline Unit, including:
• Gasoline Engine, with a bank of 4 cylinders and multipoint sequential injection

LIGHTWEIGHT ELECTRIC VEHICLES

Bench‐top educational system for the simulation and the theoretical and practical study of the main circuits and components that are used in lightweight electric vehicles.
The simulator is divided in three sections, relevant, respectively, to electric bicycles, scooters and cars and it allows learning their operation through light signaling.
By means of a selector it is possible to choose the vehicle that you want to analyze.
By connecting the panel to a computer it is possible to visualize on the screen the available information during the operation of the system.
The operating mode and the insertion of the faults are through computer.
The simulator is complete with a software that allows students studying the theory and performing the exercises.
For all three vehicles, the simulator analyzes the normal drive operation and those that depends on the slope of the road.
Furthermore, both domestic and public battery recharging systems are also dealt with.
The insertion of the faults is through computer and is relevant to the malfunctioning of the components of each vehicle.
The system is complete with a technical manual for theory and exercises.
